Orchid House by Andres Remy Arquitectos

The Orchid has always been a challenging project which was started from a young couple who had two sons, and they were interested in the development of sustainable architecture. There was a great search done by these couple for the perfect architect and they finally decided to go with Andres Remy who has been researching the architectural concepts at Rafael Vinoly’s Studio in New York for nearly four years now.

The impact of the sun’s rays in each room has been studied, in order to place the windows at the perfect depth. This is surely going to produce a unique outcome of this great project. The sun’s rays are the advantage in the winter season because these rays will keep up the temperature during the cold times.

Made in Hollywood

Here is a cool coffee table called Made in Hollywood made fromstyrofoam and other similar materials. The base is different with every model There are basically two big options: you can either choose the one that spells  the word table or the one that spells coffee. Or if you want to take them both you can form “coffee table”. This would almost be like writing a coffee table book about coffee tables, but on a simpler scale. It could be a fun piece of furniture for someone who likes this kind of things.

They all have a glass transparent top. However, this feature is not enough to make an item look elegant or stylish. This coffee table is a fun piece of furniture. But that’s all there is to say about it. It’s modern and pretty simple and that’s all. I personally find it average. But not everybody has the same tastes so there are probably a lot of people that find it extraordinary.

Japanese House by Kazujuki Okumura

Japan has both modern and traditional styles of housing. The Japanese House designed by Kazujuki Okumura has a minimalist look with its box-modules, and of course lots of great light. The architect use the wood for facades and I’m sure that inside there is at least one traditional Japanese room, called a washitsu.

Like most of the Japanese  home designs, this one is also very inspiring. It’s simple, with a minimalist look and with very nice and modern features. The wood used in the structure is a material often associated with the coziness and the warmth that a family home usually has.

From far away it doesn’t look like a family home. Not even when you get more closer, it still looks strange. The garage is probably the feature that gives you a clue that someone might actually live in there. But we already know that the Japanese people are very ingenious and original so this is not such a big surprise to anyone.

Gas Station Design by Kanner Architects

Located in La Brea and Slauson avenues in Los Angeles’s Mid-City neighborhood, the United Oil Gas Station is a combination of the city’s historic love affair with the automobile and today’s modern one-stop shopping spirit of immediate gratification and convenience.

Designed by Kanner  Architects the gas station became a center of attraction for the near-by citizens. Outside it can be seen an extraordinary line metal which is the roof of the small commercial place, but also comes in contact with the car wash.

It’s not very often that you see such a nice gas station. This one is quite unique and artistic. At night, the lights can be seen from far away and during the day the design is enough to impress to impress anyone to passes by. It’s a very ingenious way of attracting costumers.  I would go there just from curiosity and I’m sure that a lot of people do the same.

Fizz by Valera Barnayev

This is the strangest chair ever seen. Designed by Valera Barnayev, the Fizz is a part of  a collection made from a few strange and curious chairs made from odd objects. I’m not sure if I should be amused or scared when looking at these chairs. First of all, the colors are very bright, almost violent so I don’t like that. And then there is the shape that looks…strange. It’s like something is definitely wrong with those chairs.

They are made from all sorts of different objects and pieces put together so that’s also scary. You never know on what you might be sitting. They could be called earth-friendly because they are made from recycled pieces but there is nothing friendly about the image of these chairs. I wouldn’t want to have one of those in my home. But some people like exaggerated designs and very bright colors, so they might enjoy having them close by.

The Ravine Residence by Cindy Rendely Architecture

The streets here are enlightened with the neo-historical chateaus which are located in beige brick and taupe stucco and this house is located in this historical place in North Toronto, having a very good contrast from its neighbors.

The Ravine Residence by Cindy Rendely Architecture

The stepped arrangement of the volumes that were created by the famous architectural designer Cindy Rendely, open into a large landscape. The great walls and mighty doors that are situated at different entrances of the house are enlightened by the ravine and the changing seasons, which produce a great openness to the house.
